Re: [PLUG] Linux Finance Programs

No question that GNUCash is more powerful, has better business functionality 
and a really poor interface.  

I prefer kmymoney2 ( for personal finance.  
Much better interface.  Requires KDE.  Added bonus: developers monitor and 
are active and responsive in the users mail list.  Like GNUCash, the custom 
reporting is weak compared to the Intuit packages.

There are some commercial Linux packages that I haven't tried, but may be 
worth a look.  At least one has a trial version.

For business, I'd look at running Quickbooks under Crossover Office.  For 
personal, as I only use as a checkbook register, kmymoney2 is nice.
